Our tips for finding the best deals this Amazon Prime Day
IT might be tempting to dive in and snap up LOADS of items, but here’s how you can guarantee you’re getting a good deal on Amazon.
PREPARE Research the items you want to buy and find out the cheapest price. Websites like PriceSpy, PriceHistory and CamelCamelCamel will give you historical data on prices so you can see how much you should pay. You can also set up price alerts to let you know when the cost drops.
CHECK CAREFULLY Use FakeSpot to check whether the item is genuine or not. The site scans the reviews to see if they’re “reliable” or not so you can decide whether you trust the seller.
TRIAL IT FIRST Sign up to the 30 day Amazon Prime trial to take advantage of the Lightning Deals and free delivery. But remember to cancel the subscription before the trial is up or you’ll be charged the full £79.
SHOP NOW TO SAVE TIME Put the items you want in your basket ahead of Black Friday so that when the deals drop on November 24, all you’ll have to do is pay.
How can I get my hands on the deals?
If you’re looking to bag a bargain, you have to be an Amazon Prime member.
It costs £79 per year or £7.99 per month – depending on the payment plan you choose. There’s also a plan for students.
But, Amazon also offers a free 30-day trial to anyone wanting to try out the service.
Just don’t forget to cancel your membership before the end of the month or you will be charged the full amount.
